For the debts of Maradona selected clock

June 13 2006

A few days ago the Italian police confiscated the Argentine football legend Diego Maradona's two pairs of its nominal clock Rolex. The incident took place in Naples where Maradona has arrived to take part in a charity match.

As it turned out, the authorities have resorted to such a radical method in an attempt to partially cover the debt footballer - he has not paid the tax authorities 30 million euros.

Tax authorities said that they had received a court order allowing them to confiscate Maradona everything that is "within sight."

Debt accumulated over several years - from 1984 to 1990, when the Argentine played for Italian club Napoli. Maradona himself believes he has nothing to do with it: taxes for that period had to pay the club.

"We were surprised that he put on watch, - said one of the tax authorities the Associated Press. - He it is well known that when he comes to Italy he risks losing something. "

In the case of confiscation of personal belongings Maradona had acted "extremely polite and very calm." The cost of two hours is estimated at 10,000 euros.

Tax inspectors are confident that they can capitalize on this watch a lot more if they sell at auction, given the popularity of Maradona among football fans reportedly "News America."

Recall that last year, Italian police to withhold the amount that is owed to Maradona for taking part in a TV show.
